Default Flute / Guitar Duet

Does anyone know of any decent classical guitar / flute duets?

I can't think of any original flute/guitar compositions but I know of a book that has a selection of beautiful arrangements for flute and classical guitar. It may not be what you're looking for exactly, but you might want to check it out anyways

It's interesting you ask this, because just a couple days ago my dad heard a duet he really loved at a concert. The piece, by Astor Piazzolla, was played by flute and classical guitar...although the music is modern, since Piazzolla lived in the 1990s and composed mostly tangos using a lot of counterpoint and dissonance, it appears: Ástor Piazzolla - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Burning Down, have you ever played any compositions by Piazzolla? This piece is very playful and light.

"Bordel 1900 - Tango" by Astor Piazzolla for Flute and Guitar:

Flute / Guitar duets?! Well, err, okay .

Villa-lobos composed many a guitar piece (of course!), but there are a couple of ones with flutes as well -

YouTube - Kaori Fujii & Eric Cecil: Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, H. Villa-Lobos

Pavane (op. 50) by Gabriel Faure can feature a guitar/flute too -

YouTube - Pavane op. 50 Gabriel Fauré

I'm pretty sure there are a couple of Bach pieces as well, but my brain doesn't seem to remember at this moment :\.

I thought so, too! I'd never heard it before this week. Do you play flute or guitar? I wouldn't think many average non-flute or non-guitar people would be able to come up with some flute/guitar songs like you did so quickly!

Hi

No not really. I can play the guitar to a certain extent, but its more-so a hobby. Never really tried anything professional. Having said that, most of my information comes from books - and I do have a compulsive behavior to buy many classical cds at a time.

Anyways, here's a Rodrigo piece as well -

YouTube - Rodrigo: Serenata al Alba del D*a

Not the best recording though (I suppose it was recorded by one in the audience).

A beautiful, restful piece, this first one! And the second flute-guitar duet is gentle and somber.

Being a compulsive classical cd buyer would explain your familiarity with this lovely music! I had heard none of it before, so I enjoyed listening, especially since I have a flute and have been meaning to practice to learn to play better.

What would be your favorite flute piece/passage amongst all of classical music? (sorry for the sidebar, but thought I'd take a moment since the original poster hasn't replied back yet )

Oh rondo, I'm afraid I can't answer that because my familiarity with classical flute pieces is so limited...and I can't remember names of pieces or composers well, either.

My knowledge of classical music is mostly limited to music I play in an orchestra as a violin player. I have shreds of flute passages floating through my head, but I can't remember what piece they were in or who composed them!

I hope Burning Down or someone else who is very knowledgeable about classical music will be able to give you a good opinion, because I wish I could! Your question is an interesting one.

I do like the flute (and violin!) passages in Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun very much, though! (I *had* actually heard that piece before listening to it again in your Impressionistic music thread.)

Maybe I'll cheat and ask my dad what HIS favorite flute pieces/passages are...he may remember many more than I do! I'll also try listening to some of the ones Burning Down mentions earlier.
